“Over the years, I’ve bought a vast assortment of watch cases and to be honest, I tend to gravitate to one particular style, the Oval. When the team at Molequin asked if I’d like to take part in their next Atelier project I was of course flattered and had a fair idea of the type of collaboration I’d like to see come to life.
Alligator is undoubtedly the king of leather and to use some in a tasteful and discrete manner to create a Premium Oval 2 was the brief I gave the team. Coupled with Saffiano in an understated and elegant colour. It came down to either Blue or Black and in the end Oxford Blue Saffiano with Blue Bird Alligator accents won the day.
The final result blew me away and became the perfect home for two of my favourite watches.”
Who is Danny D?
You may not have heard of Danny D, but I bet you’ve spent some time ogling some of the most beautiful watches known to man on the instagram account of WatchRookiee. Danny is the founder and owner of WatchRookiee. He runs an incredibly successful business as a Diamond dealer.
His collection has been carefully curated over the years. His sublime taste in watches has seen his passionate Instagram account swell to over 50k followers. Despite all of this, he’s an incredibly humble and down to earth guy that is happy to share his passion with all walks of watch collectors and we think thats why @watchrookiee has been such a success.
When Danny pitched his idea to us we couldn’t be happier. Alligator products have a very loyal fan base including us, but it can be prohibitively expensive. A case made from full alligator can run into the thousands.
An accent panel or part mixed with regular leather would make the price more affordable but add an element of luxury that Alligator does so well.
This limited edition Premium Oval 2 is covered in our stunning Oxford Blue Saffiano. The inside is lined with marine blue Alcantara®. The side panels are genuine square scale alligator skin and the oval is finished with gold coloured hardware.
An elegant, stylish and secure option to travel with or store up to two watches.
Saffiano leather is a full grain calf skin. It has a very distinct crosshatch texture that was designed, developed and patented by Mario Prada in 1913. Prada successfully used this leather to produce an iconic line of signature bags. After the patent expired, the leather was widely adopted and used by luxury brands across the globe.
The leather is hot pressed at 70 degrees to create this beautiful pattern. The process seals the skin and results in a super resilient and easy to clean surface. It’s virtually scratch resistant and the ideal leather for straps and accessories. Our Saffiano straps will continue to soften over time, but will keep their shape and colour.

A little care can go a long way in not only protecting your watch case but also extending it’s life. The first and most important rule is to make sure that you avoid water at all costs. Water is the mortal enemy of leather and will stain, discolour and weaken the fibres.
When you’re not using your case, then we suggest storing it in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight and excessive heat.
